Chinese Students Abroad: Reflections, Strategies and Impacts of a Global Generation, Workshop at Aarhus University, Denmark (March 27-28, 2014)


Keynote Speakers:

  • DAVID ZWEIG (Hong Kong University of Science and Technology)
  • VANESSA FONG (Amherst College)

In this workshop, we aim to bring together scholars working within and across the three phases of Chinese students’ studies abroad: before, during and after. This will allow us to explore the reflections, strategies and institutional arrangements that propel the decision to study abroad; the importance of the cultural encounters that take place in the foreign setting; as well as the overall impact of student migration on Chinese society.
